Kangaroo Island is an important conservation site in South Australia thanks to its remarkable wildlife populations and expanses of natural vegetation that have never been cleared. Day tours from Adelaide are an excellent way to visit Australia’s third largest island. Highlights include the colonies of little penguins, the sea lions, the unusual rock formations at Flinders Chase National Park and, of course, the kangaroos. Much of the island is now protected, but despite these sterling efforts, the penguins are still in decline. Kangaroo Island also enjoys caves and sand dunes, providing it with an exceptional array of environments.
